    Default Sheaffer Company has been Sold

    Teri Morris from Peyton Street Pens announced that AT Cross has sold the Sheaffer Company to William Penn, a company that is based in India. No news on who will handle warranty or existing stocks of pens and inks.

    Here is one of a number of (online) news announcements, this from the Times of India:

    William Penn acquires iconic American brand Sheaffer

    (It is also hideous to note the Montblanc nib photo at the top of the article. So crude.)

    Very interesting to read all about this and maybe it sounds good for Sheaffer. Thank you both.
